than good mainly because of property damage. some say the more -- the more damage caused and the security deposit is -- would cost more and the owner would foot the bill. the law would allow landlords could evict a tenant if they don't comply with the rules. it's expected to be talked about amongst the berkeley city council tomorrow. it's also to be referred to the housing advisory for its recommendation until they come up with a report. we're live in berkeley, brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. that's a big deal for a lot of people. thank you. brian flores. 8:05. well, another alleged victim has come forward in palo alto in the case of a man exposing himself to children. now, arsing tv news -- after seeing tv news reports, a couple reported their 13-year- old daughter was flashed by a man with a similar description in early august. she was out walking her dog when she saw the man. earlier this month, a man

could be reasonably accommodated and the tenant would accept responsibility for any damage. one councilmember said this would cut down on abandonments. he also says there's confusion amongst landlords and tenants when it comes to making the exception to pets who are emotional service animals. but considering finding an apartment is very tough, some say changing this law would be a good thing. >> i do think it's a good idea. i think pets are amazing to have, especially in grad school or college. it takes a long time. you have to look for a long time. and you have to find an affordable one in the area that you want to live. it takes a few months. >> reporter: some landlords say this will cause more harm than good mainly because of property damage. some say the amount of damage caused is more than the security deposit and that leaves the owner footing the bill. the law would still allow landlords to evict a tenant if they don't comply with the rules. this is still a while before
any vote on this is reached. it's expected to be talked about briefly during the berkeley city council meeting tomorrow but likely to be referred to the housing committee advisory and make a recommendation on a report sometime later. we're live in berkeley this morning, brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> very interesting. thank you. caltrans is working on a plan to crack down on drivers who try to use exits to get around heavy traffic in marin county. they are focusing on eastbound 580 at the san quentin exit before the brick. caltrans and the highway says there have been several complaints about people getting off the freeway only to hop back on at the next entrance. >> it was making a bad situation worse. they are trying to get back on the onramp and blocking the onramp and people who live in point san quentin village were having trouble getting on the freeway. >> crews will install a left
